    Maybe Domino's no weapons policy makes the pizza man look like an easy target??

    I would rather be alive in the unemployment line than have my pizza shop boss deliver my eulogy. Just my opinion.

    If I ever decided to work for a company that had a no guns policy and decided to have one while at work, I would assume the consequences if I had to use it while at work.

    I'm glad he was able to defend himself, now (I feel)he must assume responsibility for his actions.
    According to the facts presented, I can't say that I would have done anything different. Just be glad that I was alive to look for another job.

    I understand why a company like that would want to have a no weapons policy. Just think if word got out that pizza men were carrying guns. How many sales would the company lose because customers would be afraid of an armed pizza man coming to their home? However, it is one thing to have such a rule and an entirely different thing to enforce it. Looks like this company does both.

    "Just think if word got out?"

    Heck what's in the box is more likely deadly (albeit over a longer period of time) than a defensive weapon. Maybe if "word got out" the tips would be bigger, and you could actually make earnings above the poverty level delivering pizza.

    I'm sure the gangbangers and crackhead pizza delivery guy robbers all read the company manuals of each pizza company to find out where the likely victims are... Just like they read gunbuster signs going into waffle hose or Denny's...

    C'mon... you gonna rob pizza man? you gonna get mebbe 50 bux. These thugs ain't the sharpest tools in the shed folks... they don't think... they probably don't read... and they sure as heck don't research their targets.

    Also, this proves that if a person wants to carry a firearm, they are going to do it. The ones doing it legally aren't the ones to be worried about. Imagine if word got out about that...


    ...............Well, the public would still knee jerk, and the media would run around with arms flailing, screaming about how the world is going to end because people are delivering pizzas to your door WITH GUNS.

    WRONG! The reason is that a dead employee is cheaper than civil lawsuit by the wounded criminal or wrongful death suit by the family.

    Seems like he needs a little more time at the range, but good on him. He understands why they fired him but doesn't regret it.
    If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude than the animated contest of freedom, go from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains sit lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen.

    Pizza delivery people are such easy targets for robbery, it isn't even considered news much these days due to the frequency with which it happens.

    The companies such a Domino's do not really care if an employee is safe or not, they just don't want the consequences of having an armed delivery person shooting some robber, they would rather send the delivery folk out to get robbed, assaulted and yes, even killed over a few dollars. This would be one of the jobs I would refuse to do even if I were starving to death and unemployed.

    However if more robbers get shot instead of completing their robbery word may get out and the frequency of robberies may go down some, but until it is acceptable, the honest delivery guy will get punished for his actions in defending himself and company property.

    By the way, I don't care much for Domino's pizza anyway, there is better out there and won't be having one delivered anytime soon.

    That right there is the honest truth. A dead Pizza delivery man can easily be replaced.

    Wrong to say I know, but the grunts are expendable. I bet the big shot executives have security of some sort... I say good for him, and here's to good luck on the possibly the rest of his life; who knows, the guy might have killed him and he changed that by his own actions.

    I say shame on Domino's for the decision to terminate. Some form of discipline maybe, but in this economy and at this time of year. It'll be awhile before I order from them again.
